A complaint had been lodged with the Jaffna police by an American claiming the growl of the next door dog was distressing him.
The complainant was an American engineer of a water project in Jaffna. He had also complained against the next door rooster.
When the case was taken up in the police, they advised the owners of the dog to remove it before August 5. The owner was a Grama Niladhari. (Priyantha Hewage)

Ask channel 4 to make a documentary and then show it to the UN.

[quote name="Raja swami"]Tell the bloody American to go back to his county if he want to stay as he wants. This is our country and this is how it is.. Why other naboughers not complain. Americans can't rule the whole world as they want. If we go to us and do these nonsense they treat us like dirt.[/quote]
You are the bigger idiot. He is working as an engineer helping this poor country.

If my neighbors a dog and rooster are constantly making a noise i too will do the same. Do not look at this as an issue regarding an American.

It is a reasonable request from the American man. Someone else's pet or guard shouldn't be a niucence to another one. That is the level of independence and privacy these westerners enjoying.

An American attempts to deny a dog's 1st Amendment rights; not to mention the rooster's as well. I think the inhabitants of the north have had enough of their rights taken away already. The Police should have asked the American to move.

We should not laugh about this. Neighbours can be of great disturbance. What if we can't complain about that to the police? Then we can say we have no rights left!

If he was a Sri Lankan then there would be a white van for him for sure.

Oh I appreciated the complain, since I got some relief by reading the news because everyday I read in SL Media is rape, murder, suicide, corruption, assault I can go on the list.....
